    Warm socks needed - recommendations?

    Not for golf, although I'm sure some would want them for that.

    Its at the match. When sitting/standing still my feet go like blocks of ice. I had 3 pairs of socks on on Saturday night - still cold.

    Come on I bought the sealskinz for when wet, but need some socks that Scott of the Antartic would have said "oooo, peachy".

    Recommendations?

    You are always going to suffer when stood or sat still as the blood is not flowing and you are on concrete at a football match, the worst surface for cold. I tend to get my thick socks from somewhere like Matalan, current ones are Jeep branded but I think they have Caterpillar ones as well that look the same. Walking socks from Mountain Warehouse also do a good job. I would go thin pair first followed by a thick pair and wear walking boots, thick sole. If I was in wellies I would go thin socks, thick socks plus a ridiculously thick pair of thermal socks I bought from Mountain Warehouse. They are great in wellies but too thick for normal use.

    On a really wicked day have you thought of using some of those foot warmer things, similar to the hand warmers we golfers use. My sister went to Norway to see the northern lights and bought some. She said they were fantastic, as the hand ones are to be fair. They are cheap, the cost of a pint will buy you a few pairs and see you through to the warm weather.

    Smartwool extra heavy mountaineering socks will help - bit pricey though.

    Could I be bold and suggest a different path, getting some different footwear(thick soles and 'fur' lined, for instance dickies boots are brilliant, much better than shoes, trainers or top eye shoes).

    Socks have never done much to keep my feet warm, tried muitlple, thick, football, thermal, all with not much success.

    Ive found if I wear Trainers the only thing that's going to stop the cold is Alcohol.

    Walking Boots are the way forward. Chunky soles and most have an arch in the middle so there isn't much contact with the Floor.
    Got some Brasher Socks too but it's the boots that make the Difference.

    I suffer with the cold at the match...3 coats, 2 Snoods, Gloves and a Bobble hat is the Norm.

    Battery heated socks... Usually come in at about £10-£15 a pair. Used to have them when I was a greasy biker. You can buy some that connect to a 12v system on a bike but they might not be too keen on you using a scrambler in the Kop.
